Most humans, we spend nearly all of our time engaged in the unreal stories of our mind’s ego and the minds projections into the future, and its re-writes of our past, we think that our life is like a rehearsal, that we can just keep acting out the fantasies of our mind. We create a fictional character(s) and live this fictional ‘existence’ inside.
All the time we are doing this, we are stuck in our heads and missing the real unfolding moments…our actual life. We are denying ourselves the chance to move from a life of mental concepts to a real life of actual experiences.
We can either choose to think our entire life, essentially a concept, or we can actually live it, now, which is an act that takes thoughts from a concept into an experience.
